Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation

I have been after this product for some time now... well ever since I watched Lisa Elridge's video Acne Covering Makeup! Video here.... 

Now I don't suffer from acne like I used to as a kid but I do get the occasional breakout and it always seems to be around my chin.

I thought this would be a great product to use for those bad days and here are a few swatches of the corrective foundation

As it says on the packet!!

Before any application

A really runny consistence, almost like a moisturizer 


Such an amazing difference!! It didn't feel cakey or thick. the application was smooth and you really only need a little bit as it spreads a long way.

I got mine from boots and it was £14.00 but well worth it.

Only downside.... is that when buying the product there isn't any samples so I had to guess the shade.... opting for the nude and hoping the best!

definitely 9/10 for this product

OMG Where have you been?

Where have you been?

So lovely readers I have been super dooper busy at the moment so haven't really been able to blog... AT ALL really!

Depend how much you stalk me but I have until the 28th of April to complete my BTECH in make-up course and that was with an extension!
Now I know some people will be like.... you've had a year? HOWEVER... I seem to differ from some bloggers

I work full time 9-5 Mon-Fri. My day consists of getting up at 6:50 every morning to get home about 6:30 every night (pending no delays on our lovely underground system)

Normally if I blog I draft it on my lunch break and sort it out when I get home but I've been soo busy with work there just isn't any time. Along with that and my LOVE of youtube videos.... everything has come to a standstill until I complete my course.

If I get the time... I'll post.. if not my next entry will be my give-away winner! =)

But this is just a post to let you all know I will be MIA for a few weeks... but I will be back... and as soon as my course is over with... my make-up videos will return rather than loads of hauls and tags =)

Love you guys.... and thanks for subscribing and following me!

Male Makeup - Catwalk

Hey lovers,

So this is one of my assignments that I spent today doing, with the wonderful help of mr bro in law Josh (my model) and my sister Nicola (Photographer) 

My brief was to do a male look for catwalk. Stubble and rough looking. So poor josh had to try and grow bumfluff for me... took a while! Hehe!

A bit of contouring, guyliner, some clear lip gloss and voila !!

Here are some pictures for you just a few from the stages and then the outcome!

What do you guys think?



A HUGE thank you to josh for being my model! fingers cross I pass this section!

Love Natalie xXx
